2016. In Digisleeve.
"Topiary"is his fifth album the Brooklyn electronics duo explores topics from Arkana to electricity. The title "Topiary" refers to a garden richly ornamented with sculptures such as Levins Hall in Cumbria, or that of the court in Versailles. Bushes and trees are here trimmed into abstract and natural forms, nature imitates nature, much to the delight of dreamers and romantics. The band, Sean McBride and Liz Wendelbo, sees the album as a journey through the varied pans of electromagnetic architecture and enchanted landscapes.
The sound of "Topiary" is rich and deep; Such as a 60s French pop album shot through a prism later Renaissance chamber music. Liz Wendelbo's voice seems to be haunted by the ghosts of the YéYé girls, Francoise Hardy's whisper is set against a magnificent backdrop of howling horns and organs.
